home ventilation


my stone built victorian pile is always colder inside than the outdoors temperature. And damp of course. The windows have been painted shut, there are a couple of chimneys yet unblocked, an extractor fan in the bathroom and I run a dehumidifier in my bedroom. Any suggestions for making it more habitable?. thanks John

Trade your wife in for an 18 year old replacement. Judging by the bare midriffs and bare legs up to their arm pits of many teenagers these days, they don't feel the cold at all and one or two should warm you up nicely. Me, I need layers of Damart and, at night, bed socks, plus a hottie or two.
Alternatively, take long walks across open moorland. It saves on the heating whilst you are out - and, on a day like today, the house will certainly feel warmer (and drier) inside than out, when you get back.
If you have to stay in, wall to ceiling bookcases, full to overflowing with books, works wonders. Vast quantities can be picked up for next to nothing. If you are stuck for something to do in the evenings (eg haven't taken the first suggestion to heart) you can always go to bed early with one of them..It will probably work out a lot cheaper in the long run..

Er - you do mean one of the books, don't you...? :-)

The book, yes. One of the 18 year-olds - definitely not... :-(
